4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quite a good example of a belgian ale with American IPA influences. More American than the Chouffe Houblon, but not quite as tasty.

Bottle at the Poatersgat. Amber colour with off-white fluffy head. Aroma is big citrus US style hops, bit of spicy maltiness, cat pee too. Taste is similar, initial hop bitterness then more biscuity maltiness. Not as amazing as I remember it being, but still nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 0,75L. Hazy, orange-copper colour, with for the IPA quite big, off-white head, that lasts long. Nice aroma of tropical fruits like passion fruit, grapefruit, mango, ananas, some pine and honey. Full bodied, some fuit sweetness at the start, that turns into a grapefruit bitternesss aftertaste. I expected more bitterness, having in minds that it is triple IPA. Anyway, great beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Blackdoor in Helsinki. Cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head. Sweet tropical fruitiness with some pine in aroma first. Sweet maltyness in taste with some bitterness as well. Some fruityness in taste, yeasty notes too. Leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Nice and round grassy hoppy and bitter aftertaste. Easy to drink and no sign of the alcohol. Overall quite tasty and the dipa sweetness fortunately not too overwhelming
